    How to change Font Color on Form

    Asked by NCWFMS on January 19, 2015 at 02:58 PM

    Hi, I was just speaking to one of your support staff (I think Kade was his name) via Instant Messager.  But I accidentally closed out of the page before we were done.  And now the Instant Messager icon isn't popping up anywhere.  I don't know how to get it back (it just popped up before).  Anyway, so I guess I have to start over...  Tell Kade I'm sorry if you can.

    I discovered via Form Designer how you can change the design and so forth.  I figured out how to change font color (from black to white).  But, for some reason the font color for my PayPal options won't change.  The color changed under the design and CSS draft pages, but when I go to preview the form, the text is still black.  Kade tried two different things that didn't work, but had just given me a third solution that he thought would definitely work...when I accidentally clicked out before getting a chance to read it. 

    The attempt we tried was via the CSS option.  We selected the PayPal products field, then over to the right under CSS clicked "font" and changed it to #ffffff.  But that didn't work, as I said, it still appeared black when I previewed the form.  Yes I saved the form before previewing it...

    Do you have any idea how to change this?


    Second question.

    How do you change the background color of a field?  Right now, when you enter text, that field turns white.  And having now selected all of the fonts to be white, when I go to enter text into the fields, the text seems to disappear (white text in a white background).  So how do I change the background of the fields?

    Thank you for contacting us.

    The chat support is no always available, and this is absolutely fine to contact us via this support forum.

    It appears that there is a little styling conflict on form, so please also set the white font color via the form Preferences.

    The second question has been moved into a separate thread:


    We will get back to you shortly.
